South Africa Women will host Australia for three One-Day Internationals and as many T20Is next year post the completion of the Women’s World T20. The tour that will be played in March and April, will have the ODIs as a part of the ICC Women’s Championship in which the top-seven will have direct qualification for the 2021 Women’s World Cup.
“We are very excited to announce these two home tours, with more quality women’s cricket being played on home soil, said Vincent Barnes, CSA’s High Performance manager said on Thursday (May 30). “We’ve seen some thrilling performances recently from our national team and the Australia tour will be another opportunity for them to impress in South African conditions against elite opposition.”
In addition, an emerging teams’ tournament will also be played in which South Africa will first host Bangladesh for three ODIs and as many T20s between July 23 and August 4.
“There’s a lot of cricket coming up for the Women’s team over the next two years, with the T20 World Cup next year and the Women’s World Cup in 2021, so it is important to ensure the development pipeline continues to produce and that is where the National Academy and the emerging side will prove to be pivotal.
“We have seen the likes of Nondumiso Shangase, Faye Tunnecliffe and Sinalo Jafta make their breakthroughs from the programme, going on to earn their national colours, so that is promising for the future.”
South Africa’s Emerging Team squad:Tazmin Brits, Faye Tunnicliffe, Lara Goodall, Saarah Smith, Robyn Searle, Tumi Sekhukhune, Zintle Mali, Nonkululeko Thabethe, Jade de Figuerido, Nadia Mbokotwana, Nondumiso Shangase, Evodia Yekile, Nadine de Klerk.
